Warning Warning!!! - SJB Shavettes from eBay
WARNING WARNING!!! - The CJB shavettes come shipped from eBay with a BLADE installed. I just learned this at the expense of badly cutting two fingers when I tried to pull it from the packing.....

Bummer! You would think they would mark the packaging if they were going to load it. Never used a shavette but good to know for others.Jerry...

Thanks for the heads-up. Poor packaging.
Did you complain to the seller?
Hopefully the blade had been sterilized.
Watch carefully for infection.

Yes it all looked good and clean but I went to the docs in any case. 4 stitches in the cut, antibiotics and an anti-tetanus shot.....

Warning Will Robinson! Warning!
A razor opened from it's scales is sharp and will cut you! Including shavettes!

... and then sealed it with hot tar! Seriously, reading this gave me a flashback to my early teens when I knocked an X-acto knife off the bench and slammed my knees together to try to catch it. Pops made me mow lawns to pay for the doctor visit.

When it comes to *anything*, never assume..... never assume there isn't a blade inserted, never assume someone else in traffic is going to stop. In other words, never assume.
It's one of those lessons I learned a long time ago and it frustrates me when my wife ignores it. She has this habit of being lazy when she opens the dishwasher. She leaves the door open and turns away to do something else. A month ago, she did that and when she turned back, she lost her balance and fell on the dishwasher door. Close to $1000 later, we have a new dishwasher and sure enough, she does the same thing again..... I confronted her (You'd think after 34 years of marriage, I would have known better, but....) and was told that she knew it was open and was not planning on falling down on it again. (I carefully did NOT mention the fact that she hadn't planned on falling on it the last time, when she did). Her entire family has the same attitude.... they will spend HOURS to avoid an extra 5 minutes of work when doing something.
I don't mean to be mean, I know you did not expect there to be a blade in that razor, but it IS a razor and assuming there would not be a blade in it is what caused the injury. Had you simply treated the razor as if it DID HAVE a blade in it, the injury would not have happened, and if it turned out that there was no blade in the razor, you still would not have had any problems.
I use (and so should everyone else) the same attitude when I come across a firearm. I do not know if it is loaded, but I ALWAYS treat it as if it was! If it's empty.. meh... who cares, but if it was loaded and goes off accidentally and someone is killed..... it's an entirely different story. If the firearm is ALWAYS treated as if it were loaded, there would never be a chance for an accident.
Next time, don't bet, don't assume..... It's always YOU that has to pay the price if you do.
